A widely announced improvement over previous technologies, which will revolutionize mobile communications and accelerate the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT).
5G is essential for using applications such as video streaming and tactile Internet.
From the connected heating-oil tank to the tracking of your equipment in real time, the Internet of Things is everywhere, even where you wouldn't expect it.
Thanks to its low latency (see above), 5G will allow hyper-realistic rendering in virtual-reality images with, in addition, an attenuation of dizziness and nausea.
5G will allow the network to be broken down into "slices" and assigned to specific applications such as emergency services during an event.
5G networks use little power when traffic is low, which reduces the power consumption of the antennas.
5G is here and its deployment across the country is being scheduled in stages for both end users and businesses. While we await the allocation of temporary 5G licenses, we have started to prepare the infrastructure in Belgium.
Businesses tend to adopt the network technology which suits them best. A proliferation of devices, which can lead to very inefficient set-ups. And if there was an all-in-one solution based on mobile technology?
Most of the networks in place are rapidly reaching saturation point, and the industry must continue its development. 5G is a lever on a grand scale and offers consolidation of the (too many) infrastructures.
5G is much more than an improved 4G. Autonomous vehicles, real-time monitoring of construction sites by drones., etc. Danielle Jacobs, CEO of Beltug, explains the impact that 5G will have on Belgian companies.
The Willemen company is already experimenting with the applications that 5G will make possible with the use of drones on construction sites.
Convinced of the potential of these technology concentrates, various Belgian hospitals are testing the use of drones in pilot projects.
Geert Standaert, CTO at Proximus, explains how the 5G network will be a major element in the digital trajectory of companies.
